A 30-year-old mother in Moscow tossed her two young children off a 15th-floor balcony Sunday because she was reportedly "fed up" with the two boys, according to Russian media.
Galina Ryabkova, who is seen on surveillance video shortly after the incident, appeared emotionless after going to look at the remains of her sons, ages 4 and 7, according to RT news.
The video - posted by the tabloid LifeNews.ru - begins with one of the children landing just out of frame at the bottom of a short flight of steps outside the building. A man is then seen coming out to discover the gory scene.
Ryabkova also comes downstairs, the video shows. Wearing a white t-shirt and jeans, she sits in the lobby as neighbors attempt to keep the bony blonde from walking away.
"My wife woke me up and said that there were children falling out," a neighbor told Life News, according to the RT. "We ran out and saw two children lying on the ground in front of the main door. Just at that time their mother was leaving the building. We asked her if these were her children and she replied, emotionlessly, 'Yes, I threw them away.'"
Authorities can be seen at the end of the video covering up the bodies with a white blanket, then entering the building.
Ryabkova and her family lived on the 8th floor of the apartment building, but she took the children up to the 15th before tossing them off, authorities said.
The woman initially told authorities her boys were now "angels in heaven," before refusing to talk, Sergey Markin, the Investigative Committee spokesperson, told RIA Novosti.
It is unclear why Ryabkova, who reportedly had tried to commit suicide in the past, killed her two children. Some reports claim she was looking to divorce her husband, while others suggested she had recently discovered he may have been cheating on her.
Her husband was away on a business trip at the time, RIA Novosti reported.
Ryabkova is expected to be sent to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation, RT reported, and if convicted could spend the rest of her life in prison.
